Clymer said the money she raises will not go toward buying ladders, but will be donated to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, a nonprofit that provides legal services for immigrants and refugees seeking legal asylum, CNET reported.
"This GoFundMe isn't really about ladders at all," Clymer wrote on her GoFundMe page. "It's about lifting people up."
Clymer said she was angered by the campaign to fund a border wall, which was the linchpin of Donald Trump’s successful run to the presidency in 2016.
"More than being angry, I was sad at the blatant racism of donating money to a wall that will not be built, a wall that won't work," Clymer told Business Insider. "Undocumented folks are not bringing crime or drug smuggling or any of this job-stealing nonsense to our country."
Trump said this week that he would not sign a bill to keep the government operating unless funding was included for a border wall.
